This Saturday, at the farthest reach of south east London, Thamesmead Festival will be vying with Lewisham People's Day for local festival fever. Thamesmead has all the usual music, dancing, kids activities, stalls and a community parade but also boasts X-Factor contestant Laura White, small mammals available for handling, a Dean Martin impersonator and a series of films about Thamesmead from the 1960s to the 1980s, courtesy of Chocolate Films. It all happens in Birchmere Park from 11am on 11 July.
